Painters, artists and hobbyists looking for a way to quickly mix over 1 million different colours of paint, may be interested in a new paint mixing system called the Picolor. The desktop machine takes the form of a small cube which is equipped with five different pigment colours Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black and White. Enabling it to mix and reproduce any of its 1 million colours instantly ready to use. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the desktop paint mixing system. “This cube is an art-tech gadget that will make life easier for all those who intend to mix colors and find their own unique shades.”
Picolor comes supplied with its own companion smartphone application which is supported by both Android and iOS devices and connects to the Picolor using Bluetooth. Enabling users to quickly select any colour from the application palette and send it to the desktop machine for mixing. The team is also developing the system to accept higher density pigments. ”It should be noted that some paints have a higher density and drying speed, which can cause incorrect operation of the device. However, at this moment you can add the finished pigment, a result of mixing with the cube, to the higher density bases, thus getting the desired Acrylic, Nail Polishes etc. color tone.”
The Picolor colour paint mixing system is now available to back via Kickstarter with super early bird pledges available from just $66 or £47. If all goes well worldwide shipping is expected to take place during December 2018.
